Healthy Eating Tips for CNY

Eating healthy during Chinese New Year is possible. And it’s easy with these tips from the Dietetics & Nutrition department at SingHealth Community Hospitals (SCH).

5 Easy tips to eat healthy for CNY

1. Eat before visiting

You are more likely to overeat on an empty stomach. Take a high-fibre snack such as oats, salad or fruits before you head out.

2. Go for fresh food over processed food

Choose healthier snacks like mandarin oranges. If you are cooking, use fresh ingredients such as lean meat and skinless poultry over processed food items like fish balls as they are usually lower in salt and fat.

3. Practice portion control

Put your food onto a smaller plate to help you eat less.

4. Plain water is best

Opt for plain water or drinks with reduced sugar over soft drinks and sweetened beverages.

5. Take it slow

It can be tempting to indulge in feasting but eat slowly. It can take up to 20 minutes after eating before you feel full. Eating slower also helps with digestion.
